    Post Interesting names from my family tree

    I was doing some research on my heritage last night and I came across a variety of names from my family tree. I found tons of biblical names (Elijah, John, Zachariah, Elisha, Elizabeth, Mary, ect.) I decided to share with everyone names I found interesting, names I liked, and names I didn't realize are "old" names. I know gender on most of these names but there are a few on the bottom that didn't have any indicators of gender. I am adding birth years and nicknames where I have the info.

    Boys:
    Canada "Cannie" (b 1884)
    Garnie (b 1905)
    A B Happy (b 1935)
    Napoleon (b 1874)
    Nimrod (b 1784)
    Masias (b 1769)
    Buffalo (b 1883)
    Alamander (b 1863)
    McClennand "Clenen" (b 1886)
    Ambrose (b 1798)
    Kelley "Kell" (b 1908)
    Preston (b 1857)
    Ireland (b 1884)
    Morgan (b 1886)


    Girls (tried to make them pink but wouldn't let me make all of them pink):
    Velva (b 1915)
    Audrey
    Elcia
    Candicia "Dicey" (b 1750)
    Stella (b 1911)
    Clarinda "Wren" (b 1854)
    Patanna
    Corbett (b 1897)
    Grace (b 1664)
    America (b 1867)
    Manerva "Nervie" (b 1852)
    Freelove (b 1712)
    Content
    Honor
    Amilla "Milly" (b 1798)


    Not 100& sure of gender on these names:
    Cherry (b 1683, probably female)
    Anderson (b 1854, probably male)
    Larkin (b 1767)

    Wow, Freelove may find it hard to carry the name in this modern day. Alamander is interesting but add an "s" in front and you get salamander (a type of amphibian). Nimrod is a Biblical name and used by some Jewish families (it's a doctor's name in my area). I love Clarinda nn Wren and Content would make a quirky mn. And being Canadian, how can I not admire a person named "Canada"? Thanks for sharing your family tree!
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    Some very cool names! Sometimes I think the Internet has ruined naming in the sense that we over think things and worry too much about what other people think so we dont see many names like people find in their family trees anymore.
    Josephine Athénaïs - Josephine Ivy - Myriam Athénaïs - Vivienne Josephine
    Athena Beatrice - Beatrice Cecile - Eleanor Anne-Sophie -Myriam Beatrice - Meredith Elizabeth
    Ambrose Aristide - Ulysses Aristide

    Girls: Bérangère, Bérénice, Honorine, Mazarine Boys: Augustin, Emeric, Hugo, Lambert, Lucien, Maxence, Yves
